you could really plant these in any vacant lot if you didn’t get caught, the ones on this list I’m familiar with grow with little or no tending! Free the Bee!
Ingredients: Apples from the tree (punakaneli), syrup, butter, oatmeal, muesli, coconut flour, whatever you find from the cupboard.
How to make: Put sössö together in a big oven tray or pan. Cook until looks good. Add some water if it looks dry.
Peeling alder bark for plant dye projects. The weather forecast promised thunder and hail, none of it came. It has been idly raining for a few days now.
This portable coal forge was resurrected from the old granary shed and after a simple belt replacement it’s as good as new. Pictures from late summer 2012.
Pipo is now much greater (in size) than it was last night. Comes with just one mutated desert plant. I have constructed it mostly out of plant dyed yarn, including nettle, madder and alder bark with iron oxide.
Making simple recycled paper from nettle and newspaper pulp. Very high-class. High-class wheelbarrow. Most of the pulp consisted of semi-fibrous leftovers that came from another paper project in which we used the mashed stalks. This whole batch is essentially a byproduct of something greater (supposed) to be. Hypothesis: These will at least fade.
Wool yarn dyed with various lichen and madder (the red ones). Note to self: Madder gives out fantastic dark blood red in first dye bath and when it boils it begins to give out a brick red, or salmon red if you may.
Matkustuspaita is being made of my favourite material on earth (well, maybe after leather), Rowan Revive which is 36% recycled cotton, 36% recycled silk and 28% other recycled stuff. Ain’t no bloody thing even close to the greatness of this. I will knit the world of this yarn. As soon as I finish with this pullover, which has been in the works for a few years now.
It is good to have a digging bar. Planted four blackcurrant bushes, two “Öjeby” and two “Mikael”. The soil around here is typically rocky so it’s always a great day out. Also acquired two Russian blackberry bushes, which will be planted later today.
